Isles of Scilly Tourist Information

Less than 30 miles from Land's End off the coast of Cornwall lie the beautiful Isles of Scilly (pronounced "Silly").

Often also called the Scilly Isles, this small group of islands has magnificent sandy beaches and its position within the warming effect of the Gulf Stream provides a mild climate which makes it popular with visitors.

There are five main inhabited islands; St Mary's is the largest and has the airport and main harbour for the Scillonian III, Tresco, St Martin's, St Agnes, and Bryher. In addition there are hundreds of islets to explore.

The Scillonian III ferry from Penzance provides a regular service to and from the islands but, if you are impatient, you can fly by helicopter from Penzance heliport or by "Skybus" from Land's End Airport. Impatience is something you need to leave behind on the mainland, though, because the pace of life on the islands is slower and more relaxed the way life used to be and, perhaps, the way nature intended.
 

The climate has contributed to the Scilly Isles' reputation for early flowers and produce and for the magnificent gardens which attract thousands of visitors annually.

In addition, there are plenty of other places to visit including castles, galleries, museums, craft centres and a wide selection of shops and restaurants catering for the tourist.

For the more active, watersports like sailing, windsurfing, diving, kite-surfing are obviously something easy to find when you are never more than a mile or so from the sea but there are also opportunities for riding, fishing, walking or simply watching the abundant wildlife.

There always plenty going on and the towns are a hive of activity but the islands also have wide expanses of tranquil beaches where you can get away from it all and relax ... or just sit and watch the bustling harbours as the world goes by.

If you are planning a visit, we currently offer a small selection of accommodation on the Isles of Scilly including hotels, bed and breakfasts, guest houses, self-catering and campsites.
